Nice stamp I have to say and I wonder if the perf four corners intact makes the stamp worth more? I bet there were some error perfing of these, maybe a theme for RM to do a shape collectors pack, although I'm pretty sure around the globe shapes have been covered one way or another, I can remember triangles from I think Tanzania with animals on I believe and I am sure there are round stamps and of course with modern stamps you get all wonderful shaped stamps, recently with fruit and dinosaurs being bend and peel around the actual shape.
